A select team from Inverness Rowing Club travelled to Strathclyde Park at Hamilton for the Scottish Rowing Championships at Strathclyde Park last weekend.
Both competing crews did exceptionally well in the Women’s Intermediate Pairs on Saturday, finishing a very strong first (Heather Gordon and Emily Richens) and second (SaraBrennan and Laura Evans-Smith)! Both crews included individuals who had never raced Coxless Pairs before so it was all the more rewarding!
Sunday saw the wind pick up, making conditions on the water a little more challenging for smaller boats – but it didn’t put Laura and Sara off who took the lead on their time trial and followed it up with a decisive victory overall in the Women’s Intermediate Double Sculls final. Heather then rounded off the already successful weekend by taking away another gold medal in the Women’s Intermediate Single Sculls event – fantastic!
